Choose from one of these exclusive Caron fragrances at the new Anthony Cristiano Salon

With a star-studded client list that includes Demi Moore, Robert Downey Jr., Mariah Carey, and the Kardashians, celeb hairstylist Anthony Cristiano could have simply opened a salon—or not—and left it at that. But his new salon that opened this past summer at Trump International Hotel & Tower Chicago delivers more than fabulous hairdos at the hands of the stylist to the stars.

We're not just talking about the experience of being inside the beautifully bright white salon a couple floors above the Chicago River or the high-touch service one can count on from both Cristiano and Trump. Enter the salon, look left and you won't miss what we consider to be the salon's most precious find: the Caron Paris perfume center.

As the only retailer in Chicago selling the French perfume line, Caron can be had here not only in a number of readily available bottles (see above) but also by decanting one of three signature fragrances from Baccarat crystal fountains into your own colored glass atomizer ($195, see below). It's a rare site in any salon let alone a hotel salon.

When we talked to Cristiano, he didn't hesitate to credit his wife, Antonietta, as the brains behind the Caron perfume center (she's long been a supportive partner in much of his work). But this is the other bonus of visiting the new salon; Cristiano is as kind and down to earth as they come, whether you're Marian Carey or not. It may cost $350 for his magic hands to do their work, but those who speak from experience claim God-like miracles (but, for those who can't swing it, cute cuts from other stylists begin at $85). Factor in the friendly service, celebrity-caliber care and a dose of French Caron perfume, and a visit can get you seriously lifted.
